While Sarah Palin is leaving us all guessing about her political future, Texas Governor Rick Perry may be cemented his. After his evolution comments last week, among other controversial remarks, the GOP presidential candidate is not backing down.
Although it often seems that Sarah Palin has no plan to enter the GOP presidential field, Karl Rove believes she will. The former governor of Alaska claims she has not decided whether she is going to run or not and promises to make a decision in September.
Former George W. Bush advisor Karl Rove spoke on Fox News on Saturday morning. He believes that Palin will enter the race, citing her schedule as the reason for his belief. Rove stated her upcoming schedule looks more like that of a ‘candidate’ than a ‘celebrity’.
“This is her last chance,” Rove said on the broadcast. “She either gets in or gets out after this visit next week. I think she gets in.”
Palin released a new video highlighting her Iowa travels just last week. Entitled “Iowa Passion,” the ex-Vice Presidential candidate profiles Iowans who explain why she is “a normal person just like every one of us.”Palin is set to appear in Iowa on September 3, serving as the keynote speaker at the Tea Party of America’s “Restoring America” event.
Meanwhile, Rick Perry is busy campaigning on his anti-evolution stance. Last week, during a campaign stop in New Hampshire, Perry told a woman and her son that he regarded evolution as “a theory that’s out there” and one that’s “got some gaps in it.”
In South Carolina on Friday, Perry continued to express doubt on the theory of evolution. When a woman in South Carolina congratulated him for his remarks, Perry replied “Well, God is how we got here. God may have done it in the blink of the eye or he may have done it over this long period of time, I don’t know. But I know how it got started.”
